Chevron Phillips expands capacity for sulfur-based products in Belgium

Mary Page Bailey

Chevron Phillips Chemical Co. LLC (The Woodlands, Tex.; www.cpchem.com) has announces that its wholly-owned affiliate, Chevron Phillips Chemicals International N.V. is expanding its Tessenderlo, Belgium facility. The expansion includes an on-purpose hydrogen sulfide (H2S) unit and additional sulfur-based products capacity. Construction is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2014. In preparation for the upgrade, the Tessenderlo plant added a new state-of-the-art control room in September 2013. Production capacity at the site will increase by more than 40% as a result of this expansion.
 
Chevron Phillips’ Tessenderlo facility produces chemical intermediates, including mercaptans, sulfides, polysulfides and Scentinel gas odorants that are used in agricultural chemicals, pharmaceuticals, modifiers in rubber and plastics and the odorization of propane and natural gas. Chevron Phillips Chemical produces a similar line of products at its facility in Borger, Tex.
